Squash and Blueberry Scramble

I love the harvest season… the transition from Summer to Fall… ‘cause it means there are just so many of my favorite foods readily available – local and fresh.

Two of them are berries and squashes… pretty much ANY kind of berries and ANY kind of squashes.  And I am alwasy trying to come up with new ways to eat them together.

I made this recently and absolutely loved it.  I know it is kind of strange but I assure you it is delicious.  And simple and quick.

I used leftover acorn squash but you could just as easily use butternut, or kabocha or delicata or even carnival squash… which I am sure I will soon!  I did use blueberries too – they work very well cause they don’t squish down too much when they are cooked, but if you have blackberries, by all means, use them!

I put a sprinkle of cinnamon into my scramble as it was cooking, but you could just as easily go savory with this mixture and sprinkle some crumbled bacon into it.... oh my, I just thought of that, and I am going to do it!
